Introduction and Needs

Because of its location in the Southwestern Indian Ocean along the Mozambique Channel, Madagascar is prone to extreme weather-related events such as droughts, cyclones, and floods. In early 2017, cyclone Enawo affected more than 430,000 people across the country, and displaced a cumulated total number of close to 220,000 people. Latest information available point to a strong cyclonic season for the period December 2017 to March 2018. The Southern part of Madagascar has experienced a particularly severe dry spell in the years 2015 - 2016 and the effects are slowly receding, but it is foreseen (according to FAO) for the upcoming season that close to 1.6 million inhabitants (or 54%) in 12 districts classified in IPC Phase 3 (Crisis) or IPC Phase 4 (Emergency), will remain in need of food security assistance. The drought has also induced significant mobility from the affected areas, with IOM having documented in Displacement Tracking Matrix (DTM) reports that some villages have seen up to 20 per cent of their inhabitants forced to migrate temporarily or permanently.

Since March 2017, IOM has deployed DTM tools in the South to monitor drought-induced displacement. IOM has trained local stakeholders as well as central stakeholders from the National Disaster Risk Management (DRM) Authority (Bureau National de Gestion des Risques et des Catastrophes - BNGRC) on DTM tools, including survey development, data collection, data entry, and reporting. In November, IOM participated in the review workshop of the National Contingency Plan, and in response to existing risks, IOM intends to 1) support the BNGRC in the further roll out of DTM tools as the national data management system for mass displacement of population induced by natural disasters; 2) develop camp management and camp coordination (CCCM) capacities of frontline stakeholders to manage rapid onset mass displacement of population; and 3) continue to mitigate the impacts of the drought and forced migration in the South of the country through activities that support community stabilization and transition.

IOM is a member of the Humanitarian Country Team and Shelter Cluster . NGOs work closely with IOM as implementing partners. IOM is also a part of joint projects with other UN agencies and implements its humanitarian projects under the institutional leadership and in partnership with the BNGRC.
